Gianluca Aicardi

  • Name: Gianluca "Kumagoro" Aicardi
  • Preferred Format: Modern, Commander, Legacy Tribal Wars, Limited

About:

"I hail from Genoa, Italy.

"When I don't write about Magic, I write about film and television. In general, I write a lot.

"When I play Magic, I usually play something with green in it. I don't know why I like green so much, I'm not even so concerned about the environment—though I'm concerned enough.

"When I don't play Magic, I play things like X-Wing or Zombicide. But mostly I watch films and TV shows.

"When I do things I don't like to do as much as playing games and watching films, I'm a freelance translator, editor, and proofreader. I also worked as head of programming for a couple film festivals.

"I might have some mild OCD."

The Times They Are a-Changeling

By Kumagoro (2021-03-10)

The very popular tribal theme has been around since the beginning of the game, appealing to a twin desire for linearity and interdependency. In 2007, Lorwyn threw a curve ball to tribal enthusiasts: what if a tribe existed that's every tribe at once? Changelings were born, and tribal would never be the same again.

Playmat Icons: Demons

By Kumagoro (2021-02-24)

Tormentor of souls, brokers of deals, or just plain deliverers of vicious brutality, Demons often make for the scariest presence on the battlefield. They come in all sinister shapes and horned forms, and black is their favorite color. So if you're willing to strike a bargain with them, be ready to plunge into darkness.
